HUD Releases New IDIS Training for CDBG Grantees
HUD is pleased to announce the availability of several *new* training modules for Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) grantees on using the Integrated Disbursement and Information System (IDIS).

As a CDBG grantee, whether you are a veteran user of the IDIS system or you are just learning how to add activities, report on accomplishments, or initiate financial transactions in IDIS, this training series is for you! In each module, follow along as IDIS expert users show you exactly how to navigate through screens and enter your data correctly.

You can:
  • Review just those points where you need a refresher
  • See the progression of screens for adding activities or reporting accomplishments
  • Listen to video FAQs
  • Check your knowledge with application questions

New Low Mod Jobs (LMJ) Modules Now Available!

Introduction to Low Mod Jobs Activities

*New* Introduction to LMJ Activities provides information on the eligible uses of CDBG for low mod jobs activities, the LMJ national objective, and common mistakes to avoid when reporting on those activities.

*New* Adding LMJ Activities provides step by step instruction on adding a new LMJ activity, so that you can commit program funds to it and use IDIS to draw funds from your grant allocation.

*New* Reporting on LMJ Accomplishments provides instruction on the data entry process of reporting accomplishment data for an LMJ activity, which must be done annually although more frequent reporting is encouraged.
